National Bestseller




Strange things are happening at Biehl's Academy when this elite school opens its doors to a group of orphans and reform-school rejects, kids at the end of the system's tether. But the school is run by a peculiar set of rules by which every minute is regimented and controlled. The children soon suspect that they are guinea pigs in a bizarre social experiment, and that their only hope of escape is to break through a dangerous threshold of time and space. Peter Høeg's "brilliant" and dystopian Borderliners is a "uniquely philosophical thriller" (Boston Sunday Globe) and a haunting story of childhood travail and hope.

From the Publisher:

"The Catcher in the Rye meets A Brief History of Time...Brilliantly tormenting and philosophically haunting."
--Glamour

"Gripping and disturbing...Heg's evocation of the way a child perceives the world is alarmingly vivid."
--USA Today

From the Inside Flap:

They're refugees from orphanages and reform schools, children in danger of being institutionalized for not fitting in: Borderliners.  Now they've been given one last chance:  transfer to an exclusive private academy where they will be integrated with normal, privileged students.  What they don't know--yet--is that they are subjects of a secret experiment in social Darwinism.  All they have is time, every moment of which is rigidly managed by their Dickensian academy.  For Peter and his newfound friends, August and Katarina, the only escape from the draconian present is in recreating time and space for themselves in an insidious rebellion that is both revolutionary--and suicidal...
